SAN JOSE, Calif. -- July 31, 2013

NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR) (www.netgear.com), a global networking company
that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service
providers, and Com Hem (www.comhem.se), Sweden’s leading cable service
provider, announced today the launch and deployment of the new NETGEAR
EuroDOCSIS® 3.0 N600 WiFi with Voice cable gateway (CG3700EMR).

The CG3700EMR is a high-performance voice and WiFi gateway offering both wired
and dual-band, 2.4 and 5.0 GHz, simultaneous wireless connection for fast,
N600 (300+300 Mbps) connectivity and extended reach. Voice capabilities
provide end-users with carrier-grade telephone service.

“We’re pleased to be rolling out the CG3700EMR with Com Hem. The CG3700EMR
cable gateway is a great addition to Com Hem’s suite of products and services
that will extend to their customers a reliable, easy-to-use, secure connection
for all of their connected devices,” said Naveen Chhangani, Director of
Product Marketing, Service Provider Business with NETGEAR. “With the
ever-increasing demand for whole-home connectivity, it is imperative for
operators to continue to improve and standardize their product portfolio to
include leading technologies like dual-band, dual concurrent WiFi. We’re happy
to be able to help Com Hem fulfill this need.”

The CG3700EMR can handle multiple connected devices within the home or small
business with ease. It is not uncommon for end-users to experience
interference when using large numbers of wireless connected devices at the
same time as small appliances within the home, like a microwave or cordless
telephone. This occurs due to the devices sharing only one frequency; the
CG3700EMR is able to operate simultaneously on two frequency bands—2.4 and 5.0
GHz—dramatically minimizing interference, creating a more stable signal with
superior reach than single-band gateways.

“NETGEAR’s CG3700EMR is a significant addition to the Com Hem product family.
NETGEAR has a proven track record of high quality, simple-to-use cable
products and the CG3700EMR is no exception. Minimizing the cross-talk within
the home wireless network with a dual-band, dual concurrent gateway will allow
us to provide our customers with improved performance speeds and range which
is more important than ever as there are more wireless devices within the
home. The CG3700EMR will help us continue to offer our customers the best
technology,” said Marie Johansson, Director of broadband and telephony at Com
Hem.

In addition to best-in-class WiFi and broadband connections as well as
carrier-grade voice capabilities, the NETGEAR CG3700EMR also offers enhanced
support tools. For example, remote  management uses industry standard
protocols DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS, SNMP, TR-069 and eRouter for built-in, back-end
management that gives users the seamless experience of a gateway that “just
works.” The CG37000EMR comes with the friendly NETGEAR genie® user interface,
enabling easy network management. Users also experience easy, secure guest
network access, parental controls, and a secure connection with Push ‘N’
Connect.

Additional features of the CG3700EMR include:

  *Integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch
  *Multiple wireless SSIDs
  *IPv6 support
  *New user friendly NETGEAR genie user interface
  *Speed test utility
